billionaire Media Moguls destroying Our Democracy

Ted Turner destroyed America's TV news journalism as we "knew it" with his CNN, CNN International, Headline News, and his other Time Warner holdings. Turner's news broadcasting empire "killed the competition." Then Ted Turner's CNN ran Lou Dobbs shows for years!

Lou Dobbs keeps flailing the dead horse of his fake ACORN 'scandal'

Lou Dobbs had worked with CNN since its founding in 1980, serving as a reporter and vice president. He was the host and managing editor for CNN's Moneyline, which premiered in 1980 and was renamed Lou Dobbs Tonight in 2003. Dobbs resigned from CNN in 1999, rejoined in 2000, and resigned again in November 2009. Not to mention, his CNN launched and aired scores of Glenn Beck's TV shows.

Caller Reduces Glenn Beck To High-Pitched Hissy Fit

In January 2006, CNN's Headline News announced that Beck would host a nightly news-commentary show in their new prime-time block Headline Prime. The show, simply called Glenn Beck, aired weeknights at 7:00 p.m., repeating at 9:00 p.m. and midnight (all times Eastern) from May 8, 2006 to October 16, 2008.

What does Ted Turner think about Anderson Cooper's & Wolf Blitzer's "hard-hitting" reality-TV fake-news, trying to suppress Voters and Voting via censorship and propaganda?

It's Priceless!!!

Ted Turner's net worth is $2 billion.

Ted Turner is the largest individual landholder in North America! Ted Turner OWNS approximately two million acres of personal and ranch land. Ted Turner's Western properties consist of 15 ranches in seven states (Colorado, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, and Oklahoma).

News Corp. Phone-Hacking Victims Plan to File U.S. Suit Against Directors - reported by Anthony Aarons for Bloomberg - Sep 23, 2011

Mark Lewis, a lawyer representing phone-hacking victims in London, represents the family of murdered schoolgirl Milly Dowler. Revelations that Dowler’s mobile-phone messages were deleted while she was missing in 2002 led to the closure of Murdoch's News of the World. This forced News Corp. to drop a takeover bid for British Sky Broadcasting Group Plc.

U.S. lawyers will make the final decisions on the defendants to include in the lawsuit, Lewis said in a separate interview on BBC News. He said that lawyers are looking at areas that should have been part of the knowledge of directors of a large corporation. Lawyers would seek to speak with News Corp. (NWS) Chairman Rupert Murdoch and Deputy Chief Operating Officer James Murdoch, Lewis said.

News Corp. agreed to pay 3 million pounds ($4.6 million) to the Dowlers and a charity to settle the family’s claims, a person with knowledge of the matter said this week. Rupert Murdoch was personally involved in the negotiations, the person said.

Mark Thomson, a lawyer who represents U.K. phone-hacking victims including Jude Law and Hugh Grant, said in an e-mail that none of his clients are taking part in a New York lawsuit.

At least 16 people have been arrested in the U.K. police probe into hacking, including Andy Coulson, an ex-News of the World editor who also served as Prime Minister David Cameron’s communications chief, and Rebekah Brooks, the former chief executive officer of News Corp.’s U.K. publishing unit.

News Corp., which faces a U.K. parliamentary probe of phone hacking by its employees, is also the subject of criminal investigations in the U.S.

U.S. prosecutors are examining whether employees of Rupert Murdoch’s company tried to access the voicemails of 9-11 victims, broke antitrust or related laws and, according to a person familiar with the probe, bribed U.K. police for information.

The third line of inquiry was disclosed in a U.S. letter to the company requesting information on any bribes paid by its News of the World unit, said the person, who declined to be identified because the matter isn’t public. The letter is part of a Justice Department effort to determine whether News Corp. violated the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, or FCPA, the person said.
